TAHITI, THE QUEEN ISLAND 

Tahiti is the beating heart
of French Polynesia. It is both the gateway to the country, with Tahiti's Faa'a airport, and the administrative center of Papeete; the capital and economic center of the country, with its harbor, its businesses, and shops. Downtown, Papeete's market is a must-see for anyone visiting the capital island. It features a wide range of the archipelago's production, from local fish to a rich selection of handicrafts. Yet Tahiti is so much more than Papeete: majestic valleys falling into the arms of the lagoon; rich, restored archaeological sites; the Aorai and Orohena, two sharp-peaked volcanic mountains.  It is also a big island with an infinite choice of activities. The city offers many diversions and some of the great hotels organize magnificent traditional dance shows that should not be missed. Tahiti Iti, the peninsula, holds some of the most beautiful hiking trails in Polynesia; particularly the hike to the Pari, a splendid and totally untouched site, and, of course, Teahupo'o, one of the best surf spots in the world.
